Friends of Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer Hosts Celebration of Partnership with MD Anderson in Houston

Friends of Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer recently hosted a cocktail reception celebrating the partnership between Israel’s Sheba Medical Center, the largest and most comprehensive hospital in the Middle East, and Houston’s MD Anderson Cancer Center. The two prestigious medical organizations are partnering to better understand pancreatic cancer biology with the goal of improving patient treatment and care.

Generously hosted by Jonathan and Noa Enav, the reception at Hilton Houston Plaza/Medical Center featured Sheba’s Dr. Talia Golan, founder and director of Sheba Medical Center’s Pancreatic Cancer Center - the premier organization committed to early detection, treatment and increased quality of life for people suffering from this deadly disease.

The dozens of guests at the intimate, salon-style reception heard from Dr. Golan about the latest research and advancements in immunotherapies for pancreatic cancer and learned about the collaboration between Sheba and MD Anderson. Dr. Shubhra Ghosh, project manager of global programs at MD Anderson, represented the Texas institution.

“The reception was a wonderful way to learn more about the groundbreaking work that Dr. Golan is doing at Sheba’s Pancreatic Cancer Center, and to celebrate the collaboration between Sheba Medical Center and MD Anderson,” said Molly Soboroff, Friends of Sheba Medical Center’s Executive Director. “These doctors are dedicated to improving the quality of life for those who suffer from pancreatic cancer, and we are proud to support their efforts.”

“Dr. Golan’s presentation on early detection, current clinical trials and the treatment of pancreatic cancer was enlightening for all of us,” said Nina Lieberman, Friends of Sheba Medical Center Interim Midwest Regional Director & North American Strategy Consultant, who was also present at the event. “Dr. Golan is a world-renowned physician-scientist, but above all, a woman of compassion who treats her patients as she would her own family – with respect, honesty and integrity.”

In addition to host and event chair Jonathan Enav, many representatives of the Friends of Sheba Houston Advisory Board were also in attendance, including Lori Hinze, Scott Kammerman and Deborah Kaplan.
